Found August 30, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: Miguel Cabrera
TEAMS: Detroit Tigers
Detroit Tigers’ fans received a scare yesterday as they watched MVP-candidate Miguel Cabrera exit the team’s afternoon contest early with an abdominal injury. The ailment has been diagnosed as a left abdominal wall strain, but Cabrera isn’t concerned. In fact, the third baseman told reporters – including Bobby Nightengale of MLB.com – that he will be back in the team’s lineup today. "I'm OK," Cabrera said. "I'll play tomorrow. Don't worry." Cabrera said he was feeling much better after the Tigers’ walk-off victory. He was able to celebrate the win with his teammates, a sign that he should be back in action today. Manager Jim Leyland wasn’t ready to say that Cabrera would be in the team’s starting lineup, but he did seem content that the Tigers knew what ailment the slugger was dealing with basically right off the bat. "You don't feel very comfortable when you see any of your players that might be hurt or in pain," manager Jim Leyland said. "But at least I knew what this was right off the bat. We have a pretty good idea that's an aggravation of it." There was a bit of confusion initially as it appeared Cabrera was dealing with a leg injury, but it quickly came out that his side was what was hampering him. If this is something that has potential to develop into a significant injury, Detroit would do well to hold Cabrera out for a game or two. However, if he’s healthy, it’s hard to keep him off the field. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
